TRUMP DENIES THAT HE WILL SELECT HIMSELF AS VP

New York, NY June 19, 2016
“No, I will not choose myself as VP. If I’m President I cannot also be VP. I know this. What I was overheard saying was I’d like someone exactly like me and barring that I’m not sure that I will pick anyone at all. What that means is I may go it alone. I don’t know why it is necessary to have a shadow President in the wings. If something were to happen the Speaker of the House would become President, so we’re covered anyway. Many great leaders in the Middle East, Africa, Italy, Germany and throughout the world did not choose a second as it were. They made great strides in their countries and I don’t know of any reason why I can’t do the same for America”. —slater.com©
